The Czech Republic is relaxing some coronavirus restrictions

The Czech government on Thursday laid out its plans to lift restrictions that had been imposed to curb the spread of coronavirus.

Starting Monday, some shops, gyms without locker rooms and showers, libraries and outdoor areas in zoos and botanical gardens will be reopened.

Religious services for a maximum of 15 people will also be allowed.

From May 11, all shops in shopping malls and those larger than 2,500 square meters (26,900 sq ft) will reopen, as will restaurants, bars and cafes that have outdoor patios.

Hairdressing salons, barber shops, beauty salons, massage parlors, museums and galleries will also open on May 11.

From May 25, hotels, theaters, tattoo and piercing parlors will reopen, and weddings “under specific hygienic terms” will be allowed to go ahead, the statement says.

The Czech Republic has reported 7,187 coronavirus cases, including 210 deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
